Making West Seattle greener and cleaner – you can help!

3 work parties to mention tonight – one coming up on Monday, two that happened today. First, from Nancy Whitlock at the Nature Consortium, if you have some time to spare midday Monday:

Habitat Restoration Work Party at the College Street Ravine!

Join Nature Consortium in celebrating Dow Constantine’s birthday by helping us conduct restoration activities in the College Street Ravine (Dow’s favorite greenspace) from 10 am-1 pm on Mon. 11/15. Tools, gloves & snacks provided. Bring a filled water bottle. RSVP to or 206.923.0853 and directions will be sent to you.

Meantime, thanks to a different group of volunteers, one of West Seattle’s most visible greenspaces got a little cleaner:

If your pathway to the West Seattle Bridge is via Fauntleroy, you see “Walking on Logs” every day. The overgrowth and litter stack up pretty quick, and it’s been more than seven months now since Fairmount’s Nancy Driver helped organize a new stewardship effort, since longtime West Seattle community advocate/volunteer Earl Cruzen couldn’t do it singlehandedly any more; they were out today cleaning and trimming. There’s still more work to be done, and we will pass along the word from Nancy when we get it.

Also out today: The Rotary Club of West Seattle was along the Duwamish River, sprucing things up at the Port of Seattle-owned Terminal 105 Viewpoint (which is just east of the Duwamish Longhouse). Just three weeks from today, it’s one of the Rotarians’ biggest service events of the year – the 37th annual Children’s Holiday Shopping Spree (more details on their website).

    Also today, as is the case for the 2nd Saturday of every month, the South Seattle Community College “Co-Hort” Volunteers were back at their SSCC Arboretum maintenance duties. A little upkeep earns all participants a free lunch. And anybody with a little free time on 2nd Saturday mornings can become a co-horticulturalist too… Check it out here:
